Our 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders will be heading out to Crowley to experience a day in the life of a Florida pioneer. Please contact your class teacher for more details.
We are so excited to host the Homemade Swappers of Sarasota for their Fall swap! If you love to craft, grow, cook or create, join us! There is a children’s swap as well! This is a free event but you must register, as spots are limited.
Martinmas is a the holiday that occurs between Michaelmas and Christmas on November 11th. St Martin is best known for his act of kindness towards a poor beggar he encountered who was freezing in the Winter cold. Martin used his sword to cut his own cloak in two pieces, giving one to the beggar. This act of compassion gave the beggar hope and comfort. The traditional symbol for the Martinmas holiday is the lantern. The lantern is the symbol of our own light which we can shine on a dark world, and in Waldorf school we celebrate the holiday by holding a “lantern walk”.
Waldorf Sarasota brings you the antidote to the rampant commercialism that often overwhelms children and parents alike during the holiday season: Holiday Faire! A day filled with magic and wonder for all ages.
Activities include: Beeswax candle dipping, silk dyeing, ornament crafting, jump rope making, magical puppet stories, live music, shopping handmade items from local artisans, organic refreshments and more!
